AOC: No, Seriously, We Only Have 12 Years Left

For most of her short time in public life, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has insisted that the world only has 12 years left to solve the problem of globalwarmingclimatechange before the damage is irreversible. And the damage is, well, whatever she says it is. If we don't do what AOC says before 2031, the weather is going to kill us all. That's what she said, over and over, for months and months.

Then, two weeks ago, she said this:

See, all that stuff about "12 years" was just a sarcastic, dryly humorous joke. If you thought she was serious, you have the social intelligence of a sea sponge. And that's not much, if you've ever seen a sea sponge in action. Also, you're like Dwight from The Office, which is bad because he's a jerk. LOL, etc.

And now, to prove how much smarter she is than her critics, AOC just delivered another stunning twist. When she said she was just kidding... she was just kidding!

Those crummy Republicans, yelling about the cow farts she specifically mentioned in her #GreenNewDeal FAQ.

She cleverly brought up "12 years" again as a reply to this:

See, that exasperated weatherman is just like AOC, warning all us ignorant peasants about imminent danger from the skies. Which she's just kidding about, and you shouldn't take her seriously, but also it's serious. It's both things. It's serious and it's a joke. She's got the clown nose off and on. That way, she's never wrong. And if that annoys you, it's only because you're not a genius like AOC.

She's the girl who cried wolf. Except she means it.

Not really.

But she does.

Psyche!

AOC will be 35 on October 13, 2024, which will give her almost two full terms as POTUS to save us all from the weather. Well, not literally. But also: literally.
